    What are some safety tips for hosts of Airbnb Experiences?

    Airbnb has partnered with the American Red Cross and the International Federation of the Red Cross Red Crescent to provide our community with general safety resources. Applicable in 191 countries, these resources were developed by the Red Cross Red Crescent's Global Disaster Preparedness Center—an international reference center created to build a global community for disaster preparedness innovation and learning. In an emergency situation please contact local police or emergency services immediately.

    We recommend that all hosts of experiences review the info that is relevant to the activities they are hosting, to help keep their guests and themselves safe.

    How to make an emergency plan

    As a host, we suggest preparing an emergency plan in case of a natural disaster or other emergency that could occur during an experience. The American Red Cross and International Federation of the Red Cross Red Crescent created safety cards that hosts can provide and/or fill out for guests so that everyone has quick access to local emergency information if needed.

    First aid tips

    We strongly recommend that experience hosts sign up for a First Aid & CPR training course, and hosts can also learn how to:

    • Prepare a first aid kit
    • React in an emergency
    • Provide first aid in a variety of situations

    Helping guests prepare for physical activities on your experience

    Make sure your guests have a great experience by letting them know what types of activities they can expect throughout the itinerary. Share information with guests before, during, and after the activities such as what to eat, how much sleep to get, and what types of things they should bring with them to support their health during the activities.
